GTECH, Beijing lottery roll out mobile app

Posted 5/23/12

PROVIDENCE – As part of a pilot rollout project, a small number of Beijing Lottery retailers have started using a lottery application developed by GTECH Corp. for Android phones.

The application allows the Beijing Lottery retailers to offer lottery games – both drawing based and instant – to the public in venues other than Beijing Lottery outlets.

The app supports two popular online games – 3D and Union Lotto – as well as validation of all online games and instants games, according to a release by GTECH parent Lottomatica Group.

Currently the app is only available on Samsung Galaxy SII phones, which speak wirelessly to portable/wearable Zebra thermal printers.

“The explosion of mobile devices globally, coupled with the adoption of Android, provides a compelling new paradigm for our lottery industry. This joint endeavour between the Beijing Lottery and GTECH is indicative of the innovation we expect with respect to retail solutions going forward,” said GTECH’s chief innovation officer Donald Stanford.

The Chinese market is the fastest growing lottery market in the world with an annual sales growth rate estimated at 30 percent.
